D2-51: BICYCLE WHEEL PENDULUM

Additional Info

  • ID Code: D2-51
  • Purpose: Demonstrate the Parallel Axis Theorem.
  • Description: A bicycle wheel is suspended at its axis on a physical pendulum, as seen in the photograph above. Set it swinging, and invite students to predict how its motion will change if the wheel is given some initial rotation versus with it initially not rotating versus with it fixed and unable to rotate (cord for fixing wheel available upon request).

    This demonstration can be used to introduce the Parallel Axis Theorem.
